Samir Dattani

The actor, who was last seen in Marathon, has just signed a film with Karan Johar’s banner, that also stars Imran Khan and Sonam Kapoor in the lead.

“The news has made other actors go green with envy. Sammir is glad that the role fell in his lap. Karan has put faith in Sammir and Sammir will do full justice to his character.
Besides Karan's film, Sammir is shooting for Shyam Benegal’s next venture. The film is expected to hit the theatres soon,” said a source.

Breaking the ‘handi’
Govinda ala re zara matki sambhal brijbala’ is the buzz of town, where even our our B-town folks are not keeping back and are celebrating the festival with equal fervour. One such
person, who is celebrating it, regardless of the place he is in, is the new hunk — Sonu Sood.
He is shooting in Bangkok at the moment but has made sure to celebrate it and also got the whole unit to take part in it. He got a mini ‘dahi handi’ built on the set where they are shooting, which he himself broke.

When contacted he mentioned, “It is a big part of every Hindu's ritual and is also a fun festival. I wanted to be in Mumbai during this time as it one ‘masti bhara’ festival but my shooting schedule just got extended.

 I had done a mock of it in my last movie Dhundte Reh Jaoge, and had decided that this time round, I will do it in real life too.

But still we had loads of fun, but we did it after pack up so that we didn’t waste out shoot time.” Fun, it sure seems. We are sure this 6'3 Krishna must not have had too much of a problem breaking the handi.

Let down by damsels
Govinda is in a state of shock. The actor had taken the onus of convincing one prominent leading lady of  Bollywood to pair up with him for a special cameo in his forthcoming film Life Partner and had hoped his tinsel town friends, Lara Dutta and
Katrina Kaif would agree to play this small but
significant part. When he approached them, both parties gave him the thumbs down citing date issues. We hear that Govinda is a little upset and sources close to the film say a small role coupled with the actor’s flagging fortunes as a star might have not excited the B-town girls.
